Prior to May 2012, like most businesses, we used to offer all kinds of discount codes. Discounts for special days, military servicemen and women, visitors from certain websites, and many groups - in fact to anyone that asked.
It's a common marketing tool to collect information on where people come to your website from, and what kinds of groups respond best to your offerings. Data collection to help grow our business!
Every page on our site had links to codes. Facebook, Twitter, and many, many online coupon sites carried our codes. Yet still, great customers just didn't notice and ordered at full price.
This seemed very unfair and at the end of May 2012, we stopped ALL promotions, codes and such. We reduced all our prices instead! So everyone gets the cheapest price regardless of who they are and where they come from! That seemed a lot better.
And have you noticed how we are becoming conditioned to make snap purchases when there's a sale "today only" or prices marked down from some artificially-raised number? Raising the price, then offering a discount to lower it is just dishonest and doesn't make the product worth any more, and often raises the sales tax due.
Buying from the Cribbage Guy means that you won't see the same board cheaper next week! Ordering earlier is no longer a risk!
Yes, I think we have it right. All the same, all the time, less complexity and less worry!
